A Pelican In Her Piety

On May 5, 1966 The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) blazon was officially granted. Designed by RCH Paediatrician Peter G Jones, the blazon depicted the Rods of Aesculapius, the Lion Rampant, the Southern Cross, two children, and the Australian pelican, Pelecanus Conspicillatus. ‘A pelican in her piety’ is often used in heraldry as a symbol of devotion and sacrifice.

The Latin inscribed underneath Fide, Scientia, Et Amore stands for "the faith for science and love".
